Mazel Tov - The Mets Beat the Braves 7-6 to Avoid a Series Sweep


Thanks to my 20-ticket plan for this season I was at Citi Field for the third time in a week.  Yesterday's afternoon game was the lowest of the low, so we must go up from there.

Rafael Ortega who was released by the Texas Rangers and the Yankees in 2023 was the hitting star as hit got two hits in a six-run fifth inning for the Mets.  I guess we can call him a "ReplaceMet" after Tommy Pham and Mark Canha were traded.

Kodai Senga pitched effectively for the Mets after he gave up three runs in the first inning.  He left after six innings giving up three runs on four hits with seven strikeouts.  Fortunately, the hitting for the Mes came to life scoring seven runs.  This time the four relief pitchers were able to hold the lead.

The Mets are now 53-65, just 1/2 game ahead of the last-place Nationals.  The next seven games for the Mets are against the Pirates and Cardinals.
